The Rejection Reasons report aggregates the rejection reasons selected when a candidate and/or prospect was rejected from a job. Capturing structured data around why a candidate or prospect was ultimately rejected from a job can impact the way your organization analyzes its recruiting efforts by revealing any potential trends that are keeping you from making a hire.

Note: If your Rejection Reasons report only shows None Specified, it is likely that your organization has not enforced rejection reasons as a required field when users reject a candidate and/or prospect. Click here to learn more. 

To generate a Rejection Reasons report, click the ellipsis ellipsis.png on your navigation bar and select Reports from the dropdown menu.

The report will list the rejection reasons that were selected for rejected candidates and/or prospects for jobs where you have access in the given time frame.
